Lagunans love their Zinc Café morning, noon and now, night. Yes, in summer, Zinc trots out the white tablecloths and offers dinner Wednesday through Sunday. Though the menu is exclusively vegetarian, we didn?t miss the ?meat? because their food is well-seasoned and full of nice textures and flavors. Plus, they serve wine and beer! From the small plate menu we chose the spanakopita. You have a choice of one or two. Because it was only our appetizer we shared one but once we tasted it, we were sorry we hadn?

DINING OUT The oldest, longest-running Italian eatery in Laguna Beach, Polina's Salerno on Beach Street was created in 1975 as Salerno Restaurant. It was after the demise of original owner, Tony Manzi who created the place, and following death of son Salvatore, that their favorite waitress purchased the venue. Paula Ferrell, who Manzi affectionately termed Polina and is now called Polly, took the reigns 20 years later on romantic Valentine's Day, It seems to be something of a love story ever since, noting Polly's warm affection for her loyal clientele and by token of the fact that the original chefs, Carmelo and Miguel, continue to hold forth in the kitchen.

Do you all know about Kenneth Village, or am I about to let a secret out? I will admit that, until recently, I had sort of forgotten about this little corner of heaven, with its walkers, joggers and (baby) strollers, and appealing storefronts. It's a peaceful place to spend a few hours, especially a few lunch hours. A good place to start is George's Cucina Italiana. The small, 10-table interior is reminiscent of a European wine cellar, with coved ceilings and dim, flickering lights.

DINING OUT Locals who frequently peruse Downtown Laguna Beach are likely to have sampled the delicious little pizza bites sometimes offered by perky waitresses outside the Laguna Beach Brewing Company. But there is so much more to this amazing two-story restaurant/night club than those wood-fired, brick-oven-baked pizzas lavished with cheese and the hand-crafted ales and lagers brewed on site. Enter by the side door on Laguna Avenue and discover a lineup of steel brewing tanks behind the sizable bar and nearby pool table.
